To paraphrase Rick Mercer's analysis:
Disappointment for Stephen Harper; no majority.
Disappointment for Stephane Dion; lost seats and lost Fortress Ontario.
Disappointment for Jack Layton; still in 4th place.
Disappointment for Elizabeth May; lost her riding and no elected MPs.
Satisfaction for Gilles Duceppe; but he's a separatist.
Cost: $300 million.
Estimated voter turnout: less than 60%
HOORAY FOR CANADA!! I'm going to bed.
